WORLD CHILDREN’S DAY – PARENT OPPORTUNITIES
World Children's Day is coming quickly, and we have already learned about some of the amazing activities and learning opportunities already planned for our school. We want to invite parents along the journey as well!

From climate change to education and wellbeing, young people are raising their voices on the issues that matter to their generation and calling for adults to create a better future. This World Children’s Day, it’s more important than ever that the world listens to their ideas and demands.

Bringing together the values of the Social Impact and Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Programmes, this year’s theme is ‘inclusion, for every child’. We want to highlight NAE students’ work towards Sustainable Development Goal 10 – Reduced Inequalities, and give them the chance to have their voice heard on these issues in their communities.

As parents of current and future leaders, we invite you not only to learn more about World Children’s Day but to also take part in the day by celebrating with your children, your school, and other parents in the community and beyond.

 

 

Age Group

Ways to Get Involved

Early Years

  • You can use these videos to introduce your child to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (video 1, video 2, video 3)
  • Talk to your children about why their voice matters
  • Ask your child about the rights that are most important to them but remind them that they have access to all their rights.
  • Throw a “Rights” party with your child, celebrating the UNCRCs
  • When reading books with your child, consider where there are situations that other children aren’t having their rights met (eg: Cinderella). There are also books specifically about the Rights, such as Let’s Explore Our Rights’ and others included in this reading list from Amnesty International UK

and UN Women.

Primary Years

 Secondary

  • You can use these videos to introduce your child to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (video 1, video 2)
  • Use the Child Friendly version of the UNCRC to talk to your child about their rights
  • Research and discuss organizations that protect children’s rights within your local community, and beyond
  • Have an open dialogue with your child about using their voice – Why it is important, What happens when they do not use their voice, How and when to speak up, and how to ensure we treat others with Dignity and Respect

We would love to hear about any actions you take with your child to support World Childrens’ Day!
